Tote bags

Monday, November 23, 2009
In my birdy addled brain I really can't make up my mind between these two designs for tote bags. One appeals to the tea lovers, the other to artists and doodlers alike.

Help me choose! Whichever one that wins will be debuted at the Bust Christmas Craftacular!

Harold has antler aspirations

Tuesday, November 10, 2009
I was meant to be going to a creative blogger meet up tonight but woke up feeling under the weather and probably won't make it. This makes for a grumpy Kate today but still, a doodle or two brightens the mood a little.

Business bird

I imagine this little chap is often seen taking a stroll down Savile Row...

Too many cooks spoil the broth?

Not when it comes to cupcakes...

A little outpouring...

Sunday, November 08, 2009
It's not often I write about "personal" things on my blog. I suppose it's becuase it's a place I like to keep cheery and happy but sometimes it's a good outlet for an outpouring that has to be made! As some of my readers might know, I have something called M.E, or chronic fatigue, which makes me a generally exhuasted person. Being a freelancer, this suits me well most of the time because I can work at my own pace (not to mention from bed with the trusty mac book) but at others it can be isolating and frustrating. It's a bit of a battle between mind and body, wanting to go out and be social and then having to constantly disappoint yourself when your body just says no. Lately I think it's been getting to me more and more, I think I've been under a gloomy little cloud for a while and turned into a very shy person. To be honest I'm not quite sure what direction to move in. I was considering getting a studio to work in so I could meet new people but then considered the travel aspect & lugging all of my junk (I mean essential equipment) to and from and whether I would be able to cope. I looked at a few jewellery courses too but they tend to run all day and I don't know whether I would cope with those either. Or possibly a half day internship somewhere is the way to go? It all feels like a bit of a tricky conundrum! So lovely readers, do you have any suggestions?

Ok, tired and emotional ramble over...back to nice doodles :)

Playshapes

I'm by no means a grinch but aren't these cool Playshapes by Miller Goodman the kind of toy you would steal from kids while they're distracted at Christmas?

My own Habitat

Wednesday, November 04, 2009
I'm on a bit of a decorating kick at the moment (more on that soon) so I've been buying little bits and pieces here and there as I spot them.
Habitat have been particularly good in terms of knick knacks (or tchotchkes as we refer to them in my family), on my last visit I picked up...

A beautiful laser cut tealight holder, it almost makes up for the fact that I can't have a holiday to see these landmarks

A tiny white horse photo holder (holding some new postcards soon to be in the new shop)

And this little chap, aptly named "Tweet"
